This nearly made me puke up my Vitamuffin this mornng:www.screenhead.com/reviews/tag/paul-atreides/
Robert Pattinson...as PAUL ATREIDES???

I love Herbert's universe. I actually love the prequels and sequels written by Brian Herbert even more than the originals--the Herbert/Anderson collaborations are more engagingly written and remain absolutely true to Frank Herbert's vision and original notes. One of the few rare exceptions in literature.

The remake of DUNE and Children of Dune from the SF Channel were a travesty. For all it's flaws--and they are legion--I actually prefer the David Lynch movie--the full "Alan Smithee" Cut that included the prologue about the Machine Crusade and the Butlerian Jihad.. And yes...I loved Lynch's cast--Kyle McLachlan was a wonderful Paul--in fact he is a hard core Herbert fan and stated that it had been his life long ambition to play Paul some day.
Sorry, Twilight fans. Robert ain't the Madhi.
  Kyle....or ....?....ew.
